Phoebe pedagogic planner

Phoebe is a Jisc project in the UK. It calls itself a pedagogic planner, and you can create/view/share lesson plans that are structured around templates.

Free/open source elearning authoring tool MOS

I haven't tried it out, but it looks good on screen: MOS.
In their own words:
"MOS Solo is a Windows application to create learning courses, presentations, assessments and surveys. The courses created are SCORM conformant and can be viewed in a LMS or directly on the Internet."

You can download and use it for free, but it is made by a company with add-on products, so not a Linux-like open source movement. And I couldn't see where to get the source code either, so I'm not sure where to place this one relates in the open source / commercial spectrum. Tut then again, I wouldn't know what to do with it.

50 sites for educational games

This site lists 50 places to get your educational game. It includes some that I know of, like the IBM Innov8 game that is free for academic use, or PowerUp, but most of them were new to me. Interesting list.
